Enjoyed walking the trails in the snow. Got a great work out with the family. Well maintained trails and great views. Bring walking sticks. Very helpful. The prices of the bird seed they sell was great. Bought a sack.

You can enjoy it as adult for sure, but the ones that will fully appreciate it will be the children. A great place for them to see the birds, the reptiles or the other animals, they will be the ones that will always want to get back

Our grandchildren love Sarett and we are frequent visitors. They especially enjoy watching the frogs in the two ponds next to the entrance. They also like the live animals inside and all of the displays. Sarett has large windows where you can sit and watch wildlife close up--squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, and a variety of birds. After visiting indoors we explore... More

I just loved sitting inside and watching the chipmunks, squirrels, groundhogs, and all kinds of birds. They had a lot of reptiles inside along with 2 adorable screech owls. We took the short but awesome treetop trail. Very easy trail and only took 5-10 mins total at most. Purchased some plants to take home too

Our family has been going here for years, it's 5 minutes from our house and we love all the trails. They do a great job of trying to keep trails kept up and fun for the kids.

Got to be the best value attraction of the holiday at $3 per person for multiple, well laid out trails, a tree top walk and great visitor centre with live animals, bird feeders and comfortable facilities to sit and view if you have time to spare.

We were driving thru on our way from Saugatuck to Sawyer and just stopped at this place since we had our 8 yr old with us. We are so glad we did - a delightful way to spend a couple of hours. It was $14 for the three of us, that included admission to the butterfly house which is the... More

This is a very good attraction. We spent less than $30 for our group of 8. The day was a little to cool for the beach, so we brought a picnic lunch here instead. We easily killed 4 hours.
